Wine Review: This almost clear colored Chenin Blanc based blend from Chappellet opens with a Bosc pear and honeysuckle bouquet with hints of nutmeg, jasmine, and ginger. On the palate, this wine is medium plus bodied with medium plus acidity. The mouthfeel is round, slightly viscous, vibrant, fresh, and mouthwatering. The flavor profile is green apple, white grapefruit, and nectarine pit blend with notes of lemon tea, stony minerality and white pepper. We also detected hints of lime zest and honeydew melon. The finish is dusty, dry, and refreshing. The Tasting Panel would pair this Chenin with grilled cod foil packets with seasonal vegetables or raw bar. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: This graceful and refreshing mountain-grown Chenin Blanc draws you in with aromas of orange blossom, guava, pear, Fuji apple and spring flowers, as well as hints of minerality and fresh-cut hay. On the palate, it is crisp and bright with lively acidity framing delicate flavors of Meyer lemon and honeydew melon as they build to a long, elegant finish.
